{20 Days Until Christmas: Santa Parade}

After tying the tree to the jeep and then lunch with my sister, we hurried to downtown Puyallup for Carson's parade debut.  He was pretty stoked his cub scout den had an entry in the Puyallup Santa Parade.  We dropped him off at the start and parked forever away...and hiked to the end of the route.  Since the parade started around 4:00...most of it was in the dark. So all the entries were decked out in Christmas lights galore.  And the weather was good...not too cold and no rain! Can't ask for more this time of year here!  Carson looked so cute passing out candy and walking with his cub scout friends. Thanks to the awesome Cubmaster who made it happen!

Why I {Blog}

My little blog is a family journal. I include things on here I want to remember years and years from now. So when I post a zillion is because I want to have it for my posterity. So please forgive the often posted-picture overload.

Currently I am trying to focus on my photography skills...reading, reading, reading, and taking pictures when I can. Then edit, read, read, read some more. I finally feel like I have a basic understanding of exposure...hooray! I updated my blog template so I can display larger photos because...aren't pictures better than anything I have to say anyway?

More about me here.
